DCeptette: I am going to make it through this year if it kills me version.


Adams Morgan needs water. Posted by Hello

  1. Well, they didn't go nuclear, and America's reward is a straight up-or-down vote on three of the worst judicial nominees in the history of the courts. Gee, thanks guys. At the end of the day, what disappoints me most is this, no one of any import had the brains or the balls to say the obvious thing about the filibuster--it wasn't the Senate's to take away. See, the filibuster is an extension of my voice and your voice. There was so much talk about judicial filibusters in terms of Senate traditions. Someone should have spoken up and said, "Listen, bitches, the country is not governed by traditions. It's governed by its citizens. The filibuster belongs to us. Touch it and you are done." Sad. At the end of the day, the GOP are crazy and the Democrats are quislings, and the only thing I take away from this group of fourteen is that they all desperately want to be liked. Ugh. (Post)
  2. Joe Lieberman does the only thing he's good for anymore: making up new words. "Partisanized?" What a Joementous occasion. (Wonkette)
  3. Joseph Pozell is "honored as a symbol of the city." I guess that means James hates him now, too. (Post)
  4. We forgot to express our relief last week that the planned architectural revamp of the Corcoran Gallery, designed by Frank Gehry and titled: "I Take An Aluminum Dump All Over Your Museum" appears to be dead dead dead! Because the Corcoran is broke broke broke! And Gehry's design was fugly fugly fugly! While we certainly hate the thought that the Corcoran is in financial troubles, if that's what it takes to keep Gehry out of Washington, we'll run with it. (DCist)
  5. Blogosphere: you are hereby enjoined from telling information leafblower what happened on 24 last night! Be a good neighbor! [ILB]
